An Invercargill City Council forestry company has been hit with settlement costs totalling $50,000 and issued with a warning by the Overseas Investment Office.

The Overseas Investment Office sent a formal warning letter, in respect of a breach of the Overseas Investment Act, to three companies – including Forest Growth Holdings Limited, a subsidiary company of city council-owned Invercargill City Forests Limited.
